OMG! Want one!!! A DORYU 2-16 Pistol Camera, a police-issue camera gun originally fashioned way back in 1952!
The owner Ryu Koakimoto-san “says the pistol-shaped image capture device was used to photograph criminals in the act, as well as to record the faces of protestors (who will likely need to be arrested later). The 16mm camera is equipped with a built-in flash system, a bullet clip that holds five magnesium cartridges and a C-mount (like the one used in 16mm movie recorders). As you can see from the first photo, it can be fitted with a variety of lenses.”
“MIT Laser Camera Sees Around Corners!!!!” Wicked!!!!!
“The camera works much like a flashlight that has been pointed at a mirror. When you do that, you see the light reflected onto another surface, or back at you, which is precisely the effect that Raskar and his team at the MIT Media Lab have accomplished with their powerful femtosecond laser camera.”
“The images are incredibly basic now, but Raskar and his team see huge potential in the areas of fire and rescue, the military and especially the surgical field, where he sees the camera being used as an advanced endoscope”
